Mage Wars: Academy

From Arcane Wonders: As many of you know, we are hard at work on Mage Wars Academy. Mage Wars Academy will be a huge leap forward for our game, offering a new starting point for players to enter our game’s world, as well as more cards and strategies for collectors and existing players to enjoy. Mage Wars Academy will be a 2 player starter set that comes with 2 Mages, 2 Spellbooks and a new gameplay design that is completely “board-less” offering players more portability and faster gameplay (Games average 20-30 minutes) all for roughly half the price of the current Core Set!

One of the biggest design attributes of Academy is that all Academy cards will be “forward-compatible” with the main game of Mage Wars.

“Magically Unique Battling System”

While I have only played this game a few times, I already love it. The core mechanic of the game, which sets it apart from any other game I’ve played, is that the game is not dependent on the luck of the draw. Not only can you build your own customized deck for your Mage, but you have full access to each and every card at all times. Instead of having your cards in a deck, you have all your spells (cards) in a Spellbook (mini card binders) that you can play at any time, as long as you have built enough mana to cast the spell. The two Mages in this set, Beastmaster and Wizard, play completely differently from the other and really require you to study your Spellbook and strategy for success. There is a bit of a learning curve, but it’s worth it to get the depth of gameplay and replayability.
